There is no such thing as a little herpes. What testing was done for your herpes diagnosis? Many things, many non-std related, can cause cervical inflammation. Did they do any swabs? Prescribe you any medications? grace

you were treated with antibiotics which will cover throat infections of chlamydia if indeed you do have it. you aren't likely to transmit an oral std through saliva to another through food sharing. the nurse in me can't resist pointing out that you should never be pre-chewing food for your child. That is a good way to transmit all sorts of dise...

first off - stop picking at these!!! All you do is irritate the skin and if it's an infection, you risk spreading it more. Do you use condoms for sex? Do you get proper std testing in between partners? Have you had your gardasil hpv vaccine series? Odds are these are not std related at all. The hair follicles can get blocked and cause issu...

Daily suppressive therapy reduces recurrences. It will not eliminate them entirely. You will still have herpes recurrences. when you have a flare up of your herpes, up your acyclovir dose to either 400mg 3x/day for 5 days or a simpler dose is 800mg 3x/day for 2 days and then return to your usual 400mg twice a day suppressive therapy. Increasing your medica...

A visual diagnosis of genital herpes is woefully inadequate and just bad medicine in general. At this point, I recommend that you and your partner sit down and talk about this and then both seek out type specific herpes igg blood tests to see who has what.

Actually there is little reason not to have a vaginal birth when you have genital herpes. The exception being if you have an active genital recurrence at the time of labor or if you contract hsv2 during your 3rd trimester.

About 10% of folks will test falsely negative on the herpes WB blood test. No blood test is perfect. Hsv1 is much harder to detect than hsv2 is on testing too for some reason. You had a + lesion culture. we recommend you go with that over the WB results. If you were a phone patient, was that a patient of the westover heights clinic?
